In the last few Fridays Night Videos we featured James Bond movies with memorable skiing sequences (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and The Spy Who Loved Me). The late Shane McConkey paid his own tribute to skiing in the James Bond movies in the Matchstick Production’s Seven Sunny Days. Shane re-enacted the opening sequence of The Spy Who Loved Me and with the ski action music from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Shane McConkey was born on this day, December 30, 1969.
After over one year of weekly Friday Night Video and sixty featured posts, I’m cutting down the frequency of my FNV posts so I can have more time to make more posts on other things including my ski outings. I’ve just created a page where all the past Friday Video posts are entered, so people can easily visit or re-visit previous features clips.
For the core of the Eastern Ski Season, Friday Night Video are now going to be posted on the last Friday of the Month. The next Friday Night Video post will occur on Friday January 27, 2012.
